New Delhi: Mass layoffs caused a bloodbath in 2022, but 2023’s start has already raised mayhem. Over 50,000 people were let go by Amazon, Twitter, Google, Salesforce, and over 90 other tech corporations worldwide. Techies who were previously happy with their employment’s high salaries and positive work environments are now worried about the future. The hiring market is nearly closed or constrained in the midst of the widespread layoffs.
Even those who are hired again after being fired are not protected because they still run the risk of losing their jobs in the future. In the previous four months, so and so, an IT professional was fired from three different companies.

“I suppose the date of hire is a very solid indicator of layoffs when working with thousands of employees, but I’m unsure of what to do at this point. I’ve been really fortunate to have had several overlapping severances up to this point, but I must quickly find work “In his post on Blind, he stated.
He so had three job losses in the last four months. Even though he received numerous forms of severance money, his future prospects are uncertain, much like those of other workers who recently lost their jobs. “Big IT companies still hiring? Should I wait a few months and give it another shot in the summer? visit a startup?
I’m not sure if it’s worthwhile to hunt for work because it feels like no matter what, I’ll inevitably get fired as a new recruit “He continued writing.
